Quick and Simple

Finally I have finished the cards for the fundraiser and they are in the mail. Most I did not take pictures of but those that I did I am sharing today as my last post for January.

These were all made using scraps and Buckle dies from Memory Box. I made sets of 6 varying the color of the buckles and the strip behind the DP.

This is a card I made as a single card. I find it hard to make masculine cards especially for teens but I think this one hits the mark.

I have had this dig already colored and cut out hanging around for a long time. I found it under a bunch of stuff on my table and thought I had better use it before it got buried again!

The digi is 'Twilight' from Crafts And Me colored with Prismacolor pencils. The border is a Martha Stewaart Punch around the Page. Behind the angel is frame made with Spellbinders Labels 10 and behind that is a medallion made from part of a Hearfelt Creations gate fold die set.

Medallion and Digi

Along the same lines as yesterday I made another card using  parts of a medallion and a digi stamp.

The medallion I used here is an older from Marianne Designs LRO 129. The butterflies are from a Martha Stewart punch.The diasy corner digi is from Dianne. That is all the info I have. If digi designers would put their url as part of the digi name it would make it a lot easier to give credit where credit is due!

The challenge this week at my Card Camp Yahoo Group is to make a card using pink and gray and also have something on it beginning with the letter D. This is the card I made for the challenge.

The D is for Dahlia. I colored the digi image using Prismacolor pencils. For the gray I used paper from my stash. The medallion is from Marinanne Designs LRO 185. I cut the card base smaller so that it would still fit in a standard sized envelope.

Love Forever

I had time yesterday to make a card for me. When I started out I had no idea where I was going with it but I wanted to use these papers. Well when you start without any kind of a plan it can take forever when you take into consideration the time you spend just thinking about what you want to do and change your mind a dozen times!

I used a variety of dies. Spellbinders Labels 4, Spellbinders Lattice Pendants, Memory Box Amira Flourish and Cuttlebug hearts.

On the inside I also used Marianne Designs Createabilities LRO 150. Now I am going to make a less time consuming card!

Memory Box

I have been busy making samples for Dutch Paper Crafts with the Memory Box dies Darlene sent me. She now has them for sale on her blog HERE

I used two dies for this card, Valerian Flourish and in the center the Locina Buckle.

The die I used here is the Amira Flourish mounted on a Marianne Designs die.

I used the Amira Flourish again for this wine bottle tag. This time I cut the die in half and spread it out a bit under the label so that it would fit the tag better.

This lovely border is the Cherish Border. I also used the Sophia Heart die.
This beautiful heart is the La Rue Heart die. There is also a solid heart that can be used as a backer for this die.

Again I used the Sophia Heart for this simple card.

For this card  I used the Serafina die in a different way. The die is in a heart shape and there is also a solid heart that can be used a a backer for this die.

I just love this Ringed Buckle die!

Another buckle die is this Seville Buckle.

Another Valentine

This is another simple Valentine card using punches and die cuts. I don't remember which set the 'love' came from but the sentiment is from 'Love Letters' a clear set by Inkadinkado.

Happy New Year

I am back with my first post of the new year. I have been making cards and sets for a fundraiser for my nephew's JROTC. These cards need to be inexpensive so most are CAS. I love doing CAS cards but I am running out of new ideas!

This card is pretty much self explanatory. The open heart is from a Cuttlebug die and I used a punch for the patterned heart. The hearts were glued together and then raised with dimensional tape. I punched out a lot of hearts from scraps to use for Valentine cards.

I used the same stamp for this card. sorry It came with a bundle of unmounted stamps that I bought either from Hampton Arts or My Sentiments Exactly. I punched the hearts from a small scrap I had left from a Basic Grey pad. The larger hears are glued directly to the card and the smaller ones are raised with dimensional tape.
